New Delhi: The Jammu & Kashmir government will no longer provide any security to separatists in the state, sources in the Home ministry said. The order from the state administration, issued three days after the deadly terror attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama, said all security and vehicles provided to the separatists will be withdrawn by Sunday evening.

On Saturday, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said security cover provided to the people who get funds from Pakistan and its intelligence agency ISI will be reviewed soon.

The list issued on Sunday includes Hurriyat's Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Fazal Haq Qureshi and Abdul Ghani Bhat, Bilal Lone of People's Conference, Hashim Qureshi of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front and Shabir Shah of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party.

"No security forces or cover should be provided, under any pretext, to them or any other separatist. If they have any other facilities provided by the government, they are to be withdrawn immediately," an official said.
